All about Target

A Brief History

Did you know that Target is the second-largest discount store retailer in the United States? If you guessed that Walmart is the first, you would be correct. Target was founded by George Dayton and is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Target was originally called Goodfellow Dry Goods when it was founded in June of 1902. The store was eventually renamed Dayton’s Dry Goods Company in 1903 and then the Dayton Company in 1910. Yes, either though it wasn’t originally called Target, the store has been around that long.
